Interview med Srdja Trifkovic

Interview: Trifkovic fights for free speech in Canada

By Boba Borojevic | Feb 28, 2011

Dr. Srdja Trifkovic, a scholar, author, and foreign affairs editor at Chronicles Magazine, was invited to speak at the University of British Columbia on February 24. His visit was vocally opposed by various Bosnian-Muslim lobbying groups, including one that calls itself the Institute for Research of Genocide of Canada.

Dr. Trifkovic was detained on arrival at Vancouver and some hours later sent back to the U.S. on the basis of apparently bogus accusations. The only people who have reason to “ban” him are those who seek, through lies, deceit and intimidation, to make our Canadian society less free and less open.  CKCU 93.1 FM Monday’s Encounter has contacted Dr. Trifkovic upon his return to Chicago in order to find out the reason behind his deportation from Canada.

Barred From Canada: An Update

On March 3 Ambassador James Bissett had a letter published in Alberta’s premier daily, the Edmonton Journal, taking issue with an “assistant adjunct” professor [sic!] at the University of Alberta who had voiced support for the cancellation of my lectures at UBC and UofA because of my “denial of genocide” at Srebrenica:

Roger Scruton om diskrimination

Non-Discrimination

By Roger Scruton from the March 2011 issue

Logo American Spectator

A court in Britain has just awarded damages to a gay couple against the owners of a family hotel who had refused to allow them to share a bedroom. Until recently it was normal for hotels in Britain to demand proof of marriage, before allowing a man and a woman to lodge together. Even now it is permissible for a hotel to refuse a room to a couple if one is a prostitute and the other her client. But it seems that it is not possible, even for Christians running a family hotel, to withhold a room from a couple of homosexuals. How did we get to this point, and what should we make of it?

Various statutes make it an offense for one who offers services or employment to “discriminate” on grounds judged to be irrelevant. Discrimination on grounds of race and religion has been ruled out for some time, on the understanding that our societies have to become blind to racial and religious differences if conflicts are to be avoided. The reason for this is not just pragmatic. We are heirs to the Enlightenment. Our public doctrine holds that morality is founded on humanity alone, and is therefore independent of race and religion. People believe this, even if they cannot prove that it is true.

A legacy of violence

By Efraim Karsh 

February 28, 2011

Gap between delusions of grandeur, localism, bridged time and again by force of arms became key element of Islamic political culture.

Logo The Jerusalem Post Banner 420

Turbulent times often breed nostalgia for a supposedly idyllic past. Viewing the upheavals sweeping the Middle East as a mass expression of outrage against oppression, eminent historian Bernard Lewis fondly recalled past regional order.

“The sort of authoritarian, even dictatorial regimes that rule most of the countries in the modern Islamic Middle East are a modern creation. They are a result of modernization,” he told The Jerusalem Post. “The pre-modern regimes were much more open, much more tolerant. You can see this from a number of contemporary descriptions. And the memory of that is still living.”

Condemned to Joy

The Western cult of happiness is a mirthless enterprise.

By Pascal Bruckner 

City Journal Winter 2011On August 21, 1670, Jacques Bossuet, the bishop of Meaux and official preacher to the court of Louis XIV, pronounced the eulogy for Princess Henrietta of England before the Prince of Condé. The Duchess of Orléans had died at 26 after drinking a glass of chicory that may have been poisoned. At the threshold of death, the young woman had called on priests rather than doctors, embraced the crucifix, asked for the holy sacraments, and cried out to God. The wonder of death, Bossuet exclaimed, citing Saint Anthony, was that “for the Christian, it does not put an end to life but rather to the sins and perils to which life is exposed. God abbreviates our temptations along with our days; he thus sets a limit to occasions that might cost us true, eternal life; for this world is nothing but our common exile.” The good death was a door opened on eternity, a passage to that “true, eternal life.” In this life, by contrast, agony was expected.

Bruce Bawer kan ikke lide vinmonopolet i Norge

Cheap Spirits and the Spirit of Freedom

Bruce Bawer PhotoWhen I learned that liquor can be sold in Louisiana all day and night, I was stunned. But then, I’ve lived in Norway so long that I’ve forgotten what it’s like to live like an adult.

February 28, 2011 – by Bruce Bawer

A couple of days ago a friend of mine here in Norway, where I live, posted a note on Facebook in which he sardonically noted: “Think what it’ll be like if it becomes possible for adult people to buy a bottle of red wine…at 5 PM on a Saturday or — horrors! — 7 PM on a weekday.”

Here’s the background. In Norway, all wine and spirits are sold in government-owned stores dedicated strictly to that purpose.  The stores — which collectively are known by the cozy name vinmonopolet, or “the wine monopoly” — are open from 10 to 6 on weekdays and 10 to 3 on Saturdays. They’re closed on Sundays and on all sorts of holidays. Around Christmas and Easter they’re closed for days at a stretch.

French Philosopher Bernard-Henri Lévy On Style and Why People Hate Him

By Katie Roiphe – February 25, 2011

The Wall Street JournalBHL, as he is affectionately and not so affectionately called in France, is a philosopher, writer, publisher, filmmaker, provocateur and general lightning rod. It’s hard to imagine his equivalent in America, an intellectual with a movie star’s celebrity and cachet: We don’t grow them here. But in France, he is everywhere, adored, attacked, derided, applauded; so famous that his fame itself has become the subject of any discussion of him.

A splendid-looking man, he is known for his style: his white shirts, unbuttoned, a black jacket made by Charvet, sweeping leonine hair, dark eyes. He also exudes the brooding thinky je ne sais quoi of French philosophers from time immemorial. Suffice it to say that if you are looking for him in a hotel lobby you will not have trouble spotting him.

And if Egypt (and Tunisia) Were to Intervene in Libya?

Bernard-Henri Lévy – February 28, 2011

“Unacceptable!” Barack Obama thundered.

“Unacceptable!” Nicolas Sarkozy thundered.

But in the midst of all this verbal rumbling, a thunder of fire continued to rain down on the terrorized Libyan people.

And, either paralyzed by past compromising, or wary, as usual, of giving rise to unending accusations of arrogance and meddling, or proving true, again, what I once called the Léon Blum theorem, whereby the strongest democracies, whatever their good intentions, find themselves paradoxically helpless when confronting extreme barbarism, the great powers are taking no action. They are content to stick to sanctions which certainly have their symbolic value but no longer intimidate a Qadaffi who, from now on, has nothing to lose. And here we are again, faced with the same stark prospect of carnage that prevailed in Berlin in 1953, in Hungary in 1956, in Sarajevo in 1992, and in Darfur in 2006 and 2007. As a French Minister of Foreign Affairs once said, “Of course, we shall do nothing.”

Obama’s Democracy Delusions

by Robert Spencer – March 1, 2011

President Obama made a strong statement in support of the Libyan protesters last Wednesday, condemning Gaddafi’s use of violence and affirming that the United States “strongly supports the universal rights of the Libyan people.”  Those include, he said, “the rights of peaceful assembly, free speech, and the ability of the Libyan people to determine their own destiny.”

Obama spoke with satisfaction about “the peaceful transition to democracy in both Tunisia and in Egypt” too, and was pleased that “the change that is taking place across the region is being driven by the people of the region.  This change doesn’t represent the work of the United States or any foreign power.  It represents the aspirations of people who are seeking a better life.”  He vowed that “throughout this time of transition, the United States will continue to stand up for freedom, stand up for justice, and stand up for the dignity of all people.”

Polygamy outlawed – so why not sharia?

Chad Groening – OneNewsNow – March 1, 2011

A bestselling author and critic of Islam argues that it will take a sea change in American policy for the United States to stop blindly issuing student visas to Muslims, despite the fact some come to the U.S. to commit terrorist acts.

Recently a 20-year-old Saudi Arabian national was arrested by the FBI in Texas, suspected of planning a terrorist attack using explosive chemicals. His possible targets included the Dallas home of former President George W. Bush. Authorities say the Islamic suspect indicated in his diary that he had been plotting an attack for years and obtained a scholarship so he could come directly to the United States to carry out jihad.

Pakistans eneste kristne minister myrdet

Pakistan’s only Christian minister killed. Copts massacred. Afghan convert sentenced to death. When will Britain wake up to Islam’s persecution of Christians?

By Damian Thompson – March 2nd, 2011

Logo The Telegraph

Shahbaz Bhatti was Pakistan’s Minister for Minorities and today he paid the price for belonging to the most despised Pakistani minority of all: Christians. He was shot dead in his car for the crime of campaigning to reform the country’s medieval blasphemy laws. Those laws are used to make life hell for Christians – but that doesn’t seem to bother Britain and the EU, which pour millions of pounds into Pakistan and don’t make a big deal out of anti-Christian persecution.

I don’t recall an enormous fuss being made, either, when Egypt last week acquitted the suspected murderers of six Coptic Christians mown down as they left Mass in Nag Hammadi in January. That was the “justice” handed out to Christians in Mubarak’s Egypt. If the Muslim Brotherhood seize power, this sort of case won’t even come to court.
